6:08 am
election weekended with a november surprise. the sudden resignation friday of david petraeus as director of the central intelligence agency. the former army general, the most decorated and highly regarded one of his generation, said the reasons for his resignation were personal. so they were. the story of how petraeus' marital infidelity came to light is as strange as the revelation itself. correspondent bob orr is tracking the investigation. >> good luck, sir. reporter: sources say the shocking downfall of david petraeus began a few months ago with a complaint to the f.b.i. a female friend of petraeus who officials say is not a government employee reported that she had received a series of harassing emails. the messages were anonymous. while they did not spell out a
6:09 am
specific threat, the f.b.i. launched an investigation. federal agents quickly traced the emails back to petraeus' biographer, paula broadwell. a further investigation then revealed stunning evidence that broadwell and petraeus had been involved in an extra marital affair. the f.b.i. found that petraeus and broadwell had exchanged numerous messages. some of them coded. others explicit. the communication seemed so out of character at first that agents wondered if someone had breached the c.i.a. director's email. but that did not happen. sources say when the f.b.i. asked petraeus about the communications, he confessed his indiscretions. as for the woman who received the original emails, officials say broadwell may have perceived her as arrive al for petraeus' attention. broadwell and petraeus have often been seen together in public. broadwell spent considerable time with petraeus when he commanded forces in after fan stan while doing research for

her book "all in: the education of general david petraeus." on her publicity tour married mother of two children said she would frequently conduct interviews with petraeus while on workout runs. she added this comment. >> i think he is a terrific role model for young people for executive, for women and men no matter what. >> reporter: as a four-star general who led forces in both afghanistan and iraq, petraeus became one of america's most revered and decorated soldiers. he also portrayed himself as a dedicated family man. the father of two grown children, publicly praised his wife holy during his senate confirmation hearing. >> she is an army daughter, an army wife, an army mother and an advocate for military families. i've been blessed to have had her in my corner for some 37 years and 23 moves. i appreciate the opportunity this afternoon to recognize her publicly. >> reporter: but in his parting message to his work force, petraeus confessed a moral
6:11 am
failing, saying he used extremely poor judgment that was unacceptable, he said, as a husband and as the leader of the central intelligence agency. just 14 months into his tenure as director, the man in charge of america's secrets was broad down by one of his own. >> osgood: ahead, like night and day. and a portrait... >> i want to be wanted by everyone, you know. >> reporter: at of actress sally field. thought to be the result of overactive nerves that cause chronic widespread pain. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. i learned lyrica can provide significant relief from fibromyalgia pain. and for some people, it can work in as early as the first week of treatment. so now i can plan my days and accomplish more.
6:12 am
lyrica is not for everyone. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior, or any swelling or affected breathing or skin, or changes in eyesight, including blurry vision or muscle pain with fever or tired feeling. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain, and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. with less pain, i'm feeling better now that i've found lyrica. ask your doctor if lyrica is right for your fibromyalgia pain. ask your doctor if lyrica is right i've been a superintendent for 30 some years at many different park service units across the united states. the only time i've ever had a break is when i was on maternity leave. i have retired from doing this one thing that i loved. now, i'm going to be able to have the time to explore something different. it's like another chapter.
6:13 am
>> osgood: climate change, fact or fiction? man made or a natural cycle? these are vigorously debated questions of our time that have taken on more urgency for many with the destruction wrought by super storm sandy. our cover story is reported now by david pogue of the "new york times." >> reporter: i'll admit it. i have global warming anxiety. no, it's worse than that. i have global warming anxiety anxiety. i don't know how much i should be worried. i mean, we're bombarded by conflicting opinions. you've got the scientists going, "burning fossil fuels heats the atmosphere. record temperatures. extreme weather." and then you've got the skeptics going, "oh, don't be silly. we've always had warming cycles. human activity has nothing to do with it." i feel sorry for the poor guy caught in the middle. we don't know what to think.
6:14 am
so i've decided to go on a quest. i'm going to find the top experts. i'm going to get answers to three questions: is there climate change? are we causing it? and if so, is there anything we can do about it? here's what we know for sure. the decade beginning in the year 2000 was the hottest decade ever recorded. arctic ice has melted to the lowest levels in recorded history. and sea levels have risen eight inches since 1870. >> the impacts of climate change are becoming progressively more serious. >> reporter: if anyone knows the details, it's the i.p.c.c., the intergovernmental panel on climate change which was created by the united nations in 1988. its job is to collect climate change studies from around the world and draw conclusions. its chairman is raj. >> most of the warming that is taking place is the result of human actions. >> reporter: that is greenhouse gases?
6:15 am
>> absolutely. greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide being the most dominant. >> reporter: what makes scientists so sure that those gases are building up in the atmosphere? easy. every week they go out and rustle up some air. >> we're like 2.2 miles below sea level. you don't let cars up for the last mile. why? why all this fuss? >> we want to know that we're getting clean background air, unchecked by any sort of local pollution. >> reporter: this measuring station in bolder, colorado, is run by n.o.a.a., the national oceanic and atmospheric administration. >> remember, there is often three to five feet of snow here. >> reporter: n.o.a.a.'s manager shows me how it's done. >> this is one of 70 sample sites in our network around the world globally so that these are different points on a grid, if you will, of the surface of the earth. 20,000 a year from all over the
6:16 am
world. >> reporter: the air is sampled from the tops of 1,000-foot towers anything to make sure that the sample isn't contaminated by nearby civilization. all of those bottles from around the world get shipped to labs like this one which analyze the gases inside. >> one after the other they get injected into all the measurement machines. >> reporter: peter is the chief scientist at n.o.a.a.'s global monitoring division. that air sample collecting program is his baby. >> data show that co-2 is going up. there's absolutely zero doubt about that. >> reporter: is anybody still arguing that the changes in temperatures are just part of natural earth cycles? >> they have been, yes. there are these natural fluctuations of climate. however, there's something different. you look at the rate of increase when the earth was in one of its natural cycles. what we're now having is 100
6:17 am
times as fast as what was happening during these natural cycles. >> reporter: how can there be such a thing as the skeptic? >> there's only a small fraction of skeptics who want to deny that the increase of greenhouse gases is due to mankind. most of them actually accept that. >> reporter: that's true. there aren't many climate change deniers anymore. but there's still plenty of discussion -- and that's the polite word for it -- about how much the planet is changing. >> this is the global average temperature record with 39,000 stations all around the world averaged together. this is the temperature record. >> reporter: berkeley physics professor richard muller and his daugherty elizabeth were global warming skeptics until they spent two years conducting their own study. >> the thick black line is carbon dioxide plus volcanos and everything else is the actual temperature record. the amazing thing is how well the two fit right on top of each other. >> reporter: in a "new york
6:18 am
times"ñi editorial, the mullers described themselves as converted global warming skeptics. but they sure don't sound very converted. >> the number of hurricanes has not been going up. the number of tornadoes has not been going up. >> reporter: what about the droughts and the fires in the west? >> well, that's because we're building closer on the fire areas. the number of fires in the united states has actually been decreasing with time. >> reporter: what about polar bears? they're dying because of global warming, no? >> no, there's no good scientific evidence for that. there's a problem that some people, whenever they see something they don't like, they attribute it to global warming, whether it's the death of the frogs or thew3 demise of the corrals in the pacific ocean. that's kind of cherry picking. they're simply saying if it's bad it must be global warming. >> reporter: and that brings us to the elephant in the room. hurricane sandy. the largest atlaá
6:19 am
$50 billion, second only to hurricane katrina. are these super storms related to global warming? >> there's two things to think about. one is, will there be more storms? and the second is, will more of those storms be intense? >> reporter: john mutter teaches environmental science at colombia university. >> what's happening is that if the world is warmer overall, the area that's occupied by the tropics will get larger. so if the tropics expand, they'll bring with them their tropical weather which includes hurricanes. so imagine that now we had ten hurricanes per year and two of them are really monsters. in the future, the expectation is there will still be ten but four of them will be monsters. >> reporter: there may be plenty of legitimate scientific disagreements and plenty of nasty bickering online about how much climate change we're seeing now.
6:20 am
but the really frightening part is what's coming. >> i can actually show you temperature over centuries. >> reporter: beth russell runs a n.o.a.a. exhibit called science on a sphere which can present massive amounts of temperature visually. >> here we are in the 1880s, '90s. now in the 1900s. we've seen some changes in temperature through time but really startmy to notice a trend past the year 2000 especially, continuing to step through time, the global is starting to turn more yellows and reds. >> reporter: it's baking in here. >> it's pretty dramatic what we show in this model. it gets us up to 717 parts per million of carbon dioxide which is almost double what we have today. >> there's one thing that models seem to agree upon. there will be more extreme weather. that means crop failures, for example. extreme storms also will drive people from their homes. international conflicts could easily result from it.
6:21 am
the problem now is us. so now we don't unite and try to do something about it. we all bicker until it happens. >> reporter: even the mullers are woreyed about the future. >> we don't care about what we have already seen in terms of the warming which has been quite small. what we care about is the warming we're going to have over the next 50 years. >> reporter: why? what will happen? >> lots of people who say, oh, we'll have more hurricanes, we're going to have more droughts and more problems. but the fact is we don't know. >> reporter: here's something else nobody can agree on. what to do about global warming. >> i believe by approaching this with these interim solutions of energy efficiency and clean natural gas that that can get us to the era 30, 40, 50 years from now when solar and wind and nuclear can all be competitive and take over at that point. >> reporter: china will have to be a big part of the solution. >> china surpassed the united states in 2006, by the end of
6:22 am
this year we'll be producing twice the greenhouse gases of the united states. >> reporter: even there, the i.p.c.c.'s raj sees glimmers of hope. >> i spend a lot of time in china. i see a distinct acceptance of the fact that they need to move to a low-carbon future. >> reporter: so the debate continues about how much the earth is warming and exactly what the effects will be. but on the three key questions, all my ex-pers are unanimous. is climate change real? >> yes. absolutely. climate change is real. we've just seen the beginning of it. >> reporter: is human activity contributing to it? >> yes. over 90% evidence that human beings are responsible. >> there is no doubt in my mind that humanity is the main cause. >> reporter: and is there anything we can do about it? >> yes. certainly. yes. we can do a lot. if we decide to get serious, we
6:23 am
can avoid most of it. >> osgood: next, a general story. that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was the vial and syringe dad used. and me... discovering once-daily levemir® flexpen. flexpen® is prefilled. doesn't need refrigeration for up to 42 days. no drawing from a vial. dial the exact dose. inject by pushing a button. flexpen® is insulin delivery... my way. levemir® (insulin detemir [rdna origin] injection) is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children
